Romance vs. Geeks

The topic of trying to woo a shy geek came up on break today. One of the bits that I found utterly hilarious was the bit where I, getting into the spirit of the current thread of "Yes ... we're going to role-play ... ;)" jokes, snickered, "Yeah. You Raistlin. Me Crysania."

You had to be there.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
